With extreme weather headed to the Carolinas, people were scrambling to the nearest stores today, making last minute purchases just in case it hits.

Daniel Hucks, assistant store manager of Lowe's on Iverson Way, says it’s important to be prepared, before and after the possible storm.

“As far as damage is concerned, you’re looking at purchasing tarp, gloves for clean-up, chainsaws, to clean up limbs and debris,” he said.

“Just making sure that we have our flashlights, candles, warm blanket, and a plan that if it hits very hard, we have a plan of where we need to meet, and how to get out if we need to get out,” she said.

Everyone agrees that the best preventative measure is to stay inside.
